It’s that time of year again; I CAN Network’s annual month-long campaign in which we raise money for our mentoring and camp programs, expanding their reach so that more young people on the spectrum have the opportunity to benefit from our Rethink on Awetism.
So, how does it work? Well, individuals or groups can set themselves a challenge and a fundraising goal for the month, and register on our website here.
For example, the wonderful Kristen Callow has set up a City2Surf team which will be running a 14km race from downtown Sydney to Bondi Beach. Another of our staff, the multi-talented Nick Fava, has set himself the goal of walking 25km. During our first ever Awegust for Awetism back in 2015, I gave up coffee for the month. (Now that was a challenge!)
If you would like to get involved, you can either take on a challenge yourself, or donate to someone else’s. Every dollar raised helps us to work towards a society that embraces Awetism to the benefit of all.
